While the Class XII CBSE results have been good overall, schools partly funded by the government have played party poopers. Even though government schools this year have shown a three per cent increase in pass percentage, government-aided schools’ pass percentage has gone down by about one per cent.

“While schools in Delhi have done well this year, the result of government-aided schools have gone down slightly,” said CBSE chairman Ashok Ganguly.

While the pass percentage of Delhi’s government-aided schools last year was 76.57, this year it is 75.93. These schools get 95 per cent of their funds from the government and the respective school managements provide the rest.

“Our schools have the same or better teachers and facilities than schools fully aided by the government but the reason we are not doing well is the step-motherly treatment of the government towards us,” said the principal of a south Delhi-based government-aided school.
